- Type TEXT to turn picture drawing off, and GRAPHICS to turn picture drawing
- The game is a bit buggy, but all bugs are mainly harmless.
- Verbs EXAMINE and SEARCH are usually synonims in the most of adventure games.
Not in this game (here they have different meanings). Examining is not
strictly necesary (it will give clues). Searching can discover new objects.
- Read calendar in your office to see what is current date (the game begins at
Wednesday, 18th, and ends at Saturday, 21th).
- To learn which is the more important demand to pay, try to type PAY
ELECTRICITY DEMANDS, PAY MA WILLIS DEMANDS, PAY WATER AUTORITY DEMANDS or
PAY ELECTRICITY DEMANDS. You will get a message what will happen if you don't
pay some other demand.
- If WAVE near the end of the game seems illogical for you, try GESTICULATE

this game. The game is full of messages.
- A bit of humour: try to kiss Miss Jones, or to pray. Also, try to ask Miss
Jones to wash the dirty kit...
- Of course, this is an extremely peaceful adventure, so it it impossible to
die in this game. Simply, a new day will not dawns until you finish all tasks
for the current day.
